 he  is  still  a  small  guy,  which  he  will  not  be  in  a  few  months  time  and  thats  the  time  when  u  might  have  to  get  the  rocks  out  
 
 about  the  poo,  i  think  it  has  got  some  damage  in  its  internal  organs,  it  will  be  better  if  u  feed  it  something  other  than  dried  shrimp  now,  or  are  u  feeding  it   frozen  shrimps  if  that  is  the  case  then  something  else  is  wrong  internally,  then  the  best  thing  would  be  to  fast  it  for  a  few  days  and  feed  only  soft  foods  like  earthworms,  and  pre  soaked  pellets.

 It  absolutely  refuses  to  eat  any  pellets.  I  have  tried  Azoo  9in  1  and  the  likes  but  doesnt  go  any  where  near  them  and  finally  i  have  to  net  it  out.
 
 Currently  the  feeds  alternate  between  Freeze  dried  Shrimps  and  FD  blood  worms.  Havent  tried  anything  else  yet.  You  think  I  should  put  him  on  a  fast  for  a  few  days  in  that  case?  It  also  sometimes  does  a  dog's  impersonation  if  you  call  it  that  by  trying  to  twirl  around  and  catch  its  own  tail.  Its  quite  strange  to  say  the  least.

 currently  what  i  can  say  is  your  arowana  has  an  injured  intestine  or  something  due  to  which  his  poops  looks  like  cotton,  which  isn't  a  good  sign  
 
 when  u  feed  freeze  dried  shrimps,  i  prefer  u  crush  the  front  spike  on  the  shrimp  and  then  feed  that  to  your  aro  
 and  other  than  that  blood  worms  aren't  good  food
 
 for  now  fast  him  for  a  few  days  and  keep  off  hard  foods  like  shrimp  an  all,  try  getting  him  on  market  prawn  (without  shells)

 Sweet,,,having  said  that,  the  cotton  poop  thing  was  just  a  one  time  occurrence.  I  haven't  seen  white  cotton  poop  barring  that  incident  but  have  come  across  white  stringy  poop  every  now  and  then.  On  a  normal  basis  though,  the  poop  is  light  brown/dark  brown  in  color  so  its  quite  strange.  
 
 I  have  been  wanting  to  change  the  diet  since  quite  a  few  days  so  market  prawns  should  be  a  good  substitute.  Also  any  ideas  with  regards  to  the  behavior  i  mentioned  before?

 Myxazin  (Waterlife  Product)  can  be  available  in  good  aquarium  shop  like  Aakar  &  Nautilus.
 Get  120ml  bottle  for  full  5  days  treatment  course  for  your  tank,  approx.  25ml  per  day.
 This  medicine  is  on  a  milder  side  &  works  great  for  such  infections.
 
 
 PS:  I  have  seen  the  lot  from  which  you  selected  your  Jardini,  all  of  them  were  nicely  clean-shaven.  Chuckle

 Hahah  I  told  you  so.  This  was  in  top  notch  shape  compared  to  the  others  (barring  the  barbels).  Fingers  crossed  all  goes  well.

yup  one  of  them,  it's  a  lot  easier  to  maintain  this  way.                

 
 You  mentioned  the  potted  plant  needs  appropriate  lighting.  Does  it  also  need  the  CO2  set-up?
 
 (Because,  it  seems  like  a  fantastic  idea!)

 Aaakar...  Smile  like  u  said  a  bit  overpriced  but  at  least  they  looked  good....                

 
 How  much  did  you  buy  it  for?  (at  about  4  inches,  was  it?)
 
 Whenever  I  try  to  shop  at  Aakar  (or  anywhere  at  Kurla),  those  fellas  just  seem  to  quote  ridiculous  prices  and  hope  I  just  walk  away.
 
 Last  week,  I  went  there  looking  for  African  Cichlids  for  my  new  tank.  Aakar  has  a  pretty  good  looking  set  up  in  the  inside-right  corner  of  the  store  (the  larger  one).  But,  just  to  get  a  feel  of  whether  they  are  going  to  quote  reasonable  prices,  I  first  inquired  about  some  fish  I  have  already  bought  from  my  LFS  (particularly  Pearl  Gouramis,  and  Neon  Dwarf  Gouramis).  The  price  quoted  by  the  guy  at  Aakar  was  nearly  twice  of  what  I  bought  the  same  fish  for  at  my  LFS  (at  Chembur).
 
 Believe  it  or  not,  I  have  had  better  luck  haggling  and  buying  stuff  from  Crawford!
 
 (About  the  driftwood,  I  am  going  to  Alibag  (not  the  city,  but  a  village  close  to  Mandwa)  this  weekend.  I  hope  I  can  find  some  good  pieces  there  in  the  marshes..I  don't  know  if  you  guys  have  seen  that  "driftwood"  which  is  actually  an  above  ground  root  system.  I  saw  that  in  Bandra  for  more  than  1500  bucks.  I  know  that  is  from  a  Mangrove  plant.  They  have  tons  of  those  at  Revas.  I  am  going  to  look  around  near  Mandwa.)

 Ok  have  pmed  you  the  price.
 With  regards  to  the  prices  quoted  thereabouts,  i  think  they  are  a  bit  crazy  and  the  same  applies  to   all  the  3-4  shops  in  the  lane.  Check  this  out,  I  went  there  to  pick  up  my  arowana  at  half  past  12.  He  quoted  an  exorbitant  price  and  I  said  i  will  return  later.  Later  when  i  came  back  the  prices  instantly  dropped  by  nearly  a  grand.  Remarkable.  So  I  think  it  has  something  to  do  with  their  state  of  mine  at  that  point  of  time  than  anything  else.

 Had  gone  to  Aquaria  yesterday  to  pick  up  the  medicine  but  they  had  the  Myxazin  rid  all  variant(100ml)  which  cost  almost  half  the  price  I  paid  for  the  Arowana!
 
 So  i  ended  up  changing  50%  water,  added  some  rock  salt  and  chucked  in  an  almond  leaf  and  I  think  I  can  already  see  improvements.  !!
